Leather Purse With Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Leather Purse With Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Hello All…
I Love doing Embroidery, but it takes much time & concentration & being a student,I cant enjoy embroidery much.but last month I was free from Exams so I thought why not to try something with Embroidery..

Once I have shared a waist belt & I said I will share its technique..but sorry I am late :( well my today’s creation is a part of  the same thing! this post will be helpful for you !
So Lets see what I have Done within a few hours!

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Is it Nice..?
Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Its Not a big purse,I can add some handy stuff in it :) like my iPhone,glasses,wallet etc :)

This is the finished Design, When I start this I was thinking about making a belt but at last I complete a purse :)

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

 I bought nothing for making this,I was not sure what I will use in design,I open my Embroidery stuff stash which is filled with several colors & designs of beads,sequins,rhinestones,tiny decorative stuff for fabric etc.. I am a good organizer :) & I love these glass jars of 2″..hmm

 I use 3 colors of sequins(green,aqua,antique) & 3 colors of Tilla(embroidery thread)

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

 I take the leather piece which I have been used in my sweater refashion ,Its a good stuff for doing Embroidery! & I make a freehand design with marker,

FOR THE DETAILED TUTORIAL OF THIS EMBROIDERY STITCH,CHECK THIS PREVIOUS TUTORIAL POST

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

First I start making the outline with chain stitch, the hook is like crochet hook but with a very slim Tip

 Then I start doing Zigzag over the chain stitch because the chain stitch will definitely be safe even if you will cut along the outline of embroidery,,,Actually I start making this as a belt patch design but when I complete I make a purse..huh..if you are not going to cut it,you can avoid zigzag stitch!

Then I start filling the design with sequins,my Mother suggest me to make a purse or pouch with this embroidery,I like her idea & I start spreading this design :)

Again first I make chain stitch outline & then filling with sequins!

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Its the front & back side, you can see back side is not Much messy with threads,Ohhh,,this shape looks like butterfly too..isn’t it?
Hand Embroidery (DIY)

Hand Embroidery (DIY)

My mother help me in sewing this purse,I am not good in sewing! Then I attach a rhinestones lace as a strip of my purse :)
Roses are Not usual in this severe cold..but daily I pluck 4,5 roses from my garden,Unique..isn’t it?
Have a look at some of my other Zardosi embroidery posts!
I HOPE you will like my work, Give it a try & Enjoy!
AND
If you want to make a waist belt with the same design you will need to do..
1- cut the embroidery design patch carefully
2- paste any thick fabric piece at back side
3- take any waist belt or broad ribbon & hand stitch the patch with the strip & you have done!

p.s have you noticed my cell casing above? be ready for its DIY next week :)

    Wow. This is really great. You know it took me awhile to get to your post although you linked up on the same parties I did shortly before me, so I’ve seen you a couple of times. But I didn’t want to look at your pretty embroidery because that makes me realize that I am so not good at embroidery. I might have to take a class or something… ;O)Because I’d like to have a purse like that.
